Item 5.02.     Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On July 24, 2023, in connection with the Company’s recently announced CEO transition plan, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”) of LivePerson, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a retention program for certain key employees and members of the Company’s leadership team (the “Retention Program”), in the interest of supporting continuity as part of a smooth and orderly transition. Pursuant to the Retention Program, executive officers John Collins and Monica Greenberg (each, an “Executive Officer”) are among the participants, and are entitled to receive cash retention bonuses up to an amount equal to their annual base salary ($525,000 and $450,000, respectively), conditioned on their continued employment on the relevant payment dates (the “Retention Bonuses”) or earlier termination as summarized below. The Retention Bonuses are payable in two equal installments on January 12, 2024 and July 12, 2024. If the Executive Officer is terminated without cause or if the Executive Officer resigns for good reason prior to July 12, 2024, any remaining unpaid portion of their Retention Bonus will be accelerated and paid at the time of termination.

In addition, pursuant to the Retention Program, if the Executive Officer is terminated without cause or resigns for good reason prior to July 12, 2024, notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in their applicable award agreements or employment agreements, the Executive Officer will receive (i) the severance benefits they are entitled to under their employment agreements on a termination without cause, and (ii) any stock options or time-vesting restricted stock units held by the Executive Officer on the date of termination that would have vested in the 12 month period following termination had the Executive Officer remained employed will immediately vest on the date of termination.

The terms of the Retention Program will be set forth in a letter agreement between the Company and each Executive Officer.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
